    Im the guitar tech. Its a good career move for anyone who used to play in a band but actually just really really enjoys airport lounges, being tired and very long bus trips. ;c)

    For me the Omega white dial RAF is the best looking watch ever made, along with variants from other makers. I've had some bad luck with damaging vintage watches and have always wanted a modern equivalent. The Longines Heritage got close but the case is too big and it has a faux patina dial, so I was over the moon when I found this watch, it's basically perfect.

    I tried for one before Christmas but found they were out of stock. Contacted Eddie who said there might be more stock in the new year.

    I don't want to harass the man, so I am wondering if any of you timefactors regulars have any tips on making sure I know when they're available again and making sure I can snag one?

    Ok im back...
    The watch performed flawlessly. As suspected it ran a few seconds slower in use, bringing it closer to +1 sec per day on the wrist. The lack of lume wasnt a problem, as i didnt really get any sleep at any point on the tour...
    So.. in the bus on the way to the first festival. Isnt New Zealand gorgeous?



    Setting up guitar world...



    Soundcheck time!



    Quick shot of the show



    We then packed down, had a beer, and went straight to the airport, got on a plane, and went straight to Perth in western australia. There we did the whole process again, for new years eve. On 4 hours sleep, caught on the plane....

    In what can only be described as an OCD annoyingly annoying annoyance, the person who set the stage countdown clock for the midnight celebrations set it a minute early...


    But anyways, a gigs a gig and afterwards we got drunk and went home. Which took 2 days apparently.... i dunno, i was asleep. Heres a shot taken on the heathrow express....



    Cheers everyone, have a great new year!
    Rich.

    Ps- if anyones on Instagram my ig name is Watchroadie - i always tag timefactors and also Worn &Wound. I figure one day ill get the front page of the w&w instagram roundup and get TF some more publicity... ;c)

    Would someone with a micro-meter be able to confirm the diameter of the shoulderless spring bars fitted please?


    I am keen to fit a Bonklip but want to get hold of some unobtrusive nylon washers to save damage to the lugs. If I go for a 16mm width then there will be space for small washers each side of the end pieces.


    Here is a supplier of very small washers found via Google:

    My pleasure. I'm not sure what the minimum order is for those washers, but if you find yourself with far too many I'd be interested in buying some from you. I'd quite like to dabble with a Bonklip.

    I couldn't manage to order the washers but found some silicone tubing with an internal diameter of 1.6mm and an outer of 2.5mm that I think will work. Being as it comes in a 1m length then I will have lots over to give away - should it work of course!

    I use the ink reservoir tubes from ballpoint pens.. just slice it up with a razor in whatever thickness you need.

    Hi guys, I read that Eddie said the AM version is all gone but on the site it is still available (although the site itself is closed till next Tuesday)
    Do you think they will be available again?
    Thanks

    Yes, that confused me, too, so presume website hasn't been updated. More on the way apparently (see post #956). No doubt there will be an announcement when ready.

    Well, I couldn't wait so I jumped on a plexy 29A I saw for sale. Having owned two 29b's and a Precista 82 I am sure I will love it.
    It is my first 36mm watch and if I'm ok with the size my plan is to pick up an Everest 36 and/or a 29a AM.
    Cant wait for it to arrive!

    As previously mentioned I though that I would try a Bonklip style bracelet

    So far I am impressed, its super light and thin and feels very comfy. I love the look of the AM with this fitted.

    As regards preventing the end links chewing up the lugs I bought some narrow gauge silicone tubing and fitted a short section to the ends of the spring bar. I ordered a 16mm bracelet to accommodate this. It works really well and unless you look closely you cant see them. If anyone wants to try this just drop me a PM and I will send a small sample FOC.

    This particular example was £20 from a Swiss seller and is NOS. The only thing I don't like about it is that is that some of the links are too shiny for my taste - I will tone them down with some fine wire wool when I get round to it.

    I should mention that in the photos below I have the strap fitted the wrong way round - have swapped the ends around since then and it feels even better!

    I think that I am going to try this bracelet on a few of my other watches too!







    A couple of pics with it fitted the right way round!
